If you blink you may miss the blur of Tristan Vautier‘s No. 55 car as it launches around ovals on the IZOD IndyCar Series schedule, but a company that is in the business of helping people see clearly has signed on to sponsor Vautier’s car for a stretch of four oval races.
Coastal.com is the largest online retailer of eyeglasses and contacts in North America. The company served as a primary sponsor for Tristan Vautier at Texas Motor Speedway for the Firestone 550, and will continue on with Vautier for the Milwaukee IndyFest, the Iowa Corn Indy 250 and the Pocono INDYCAR 400.
“At Coastal.com we believe in speed,” said Braden Hoeppner, Vice President of web sales at Coastal.com. “Most of our customer’s orders are delivered within just a couple days from the time they order and as such we are the fastest online optical store in the world.”
Coastal.com’s emphasis on speed is a natural fit for IZOD IndyCar Series rookie Vautier who has driven from the back to the front of the talented IndyCar field at several races.
“Partnering with Schmidt Peterson Motorsports and Tristan Vautier is a perfect fit to demonstrate how fast we can really be at Coastal.com,” Hoeppner said. “We’re excited to work with Tristan (Vautier) who has a passion for speed and has demonstrated that on the track already in his young career.”
Schmidt Peterson Motorsports owner Sam Schmidt is excited to welcome a new partner to the team.
“Coastal.com is a smart company that has found success with a business model that offers its customers high quality products at a reduced price,” Schmidt said. “We have a great opportunity to welcome a new sponsor to our exciting sport through our partnership with Coastal.com, and I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish with Tristan Vautier on track sporting their livery.”
